The patch doesn't do that, however - working directories are per-process,
and there is no way for urxvt to know which process is meant. To do it
properly, you need osme communication form the process running inside.

A method that works even on linux is to identify what you mean with
"working directory", for example, a good point is when the shell prints a
prompt to wait for user input. That could be modified to tell urxvt about
the current wd (e.g. by setting a window property).
